    Charlie's Angels #5 Movie Franchise Flop

    Nolte is on a run with his ongoing analysis of Hollyweird's multiple movie failures.

    Nolte: ‘Charlie’s Angels’ Is Fifth Woketard Franchise to Die at Box Office

    The 2019 reboot/sequel of Charlie’s Angels just opened to a catastrophic $8 million, making it the fifth man-hating, woketard franchise to get wiped out at the box office.

    Angels, which was written and directed by Elizabeth Banks, is not only under-performing expectations by about 50 percent, it got run over by Ford v Ferrari, a movie about real men who throw punches and burn fossil fuels.

    On top of being number one at the box office with a $30 million opening, Ford v Ferrari over-performed by about 50 percent.

    Having seen and reviewed both, I can tell you that none of this has to do with gender.

    Angels is a failure because it features unappealing actresses who are more interested in lecturing us than showing us a good time. The film’s trailers promised a pretentious feminist lecture full of man-hating… and the sexless movie delivered.

    On the other hand, Ford v Ferrari looked like a great time at the movies, like an unpretentious underdog story with appealing characters you actually want to spend time with… and the movie delivered (and then some).

    Charlie’s Angels is a poorly shot, poorly written, joyless death march of feminist talking points, poorly choreographed action scenes, starring three girls who have no charisma and even less chemistry together.

    Charlie’s Angels wants you to feel bad about yourself, to feel guilty about being a man, for not being virtuous enough, and to divide us by lying to women about an oppressive patriarchy that doesn’t exist. GRRRRL POWER is not a theme, it’s a slogan, and Angels is a movie that confuses strident posturing with having something to say.

    Ford v Ferrari is beautifully shot, rousing, inspiring, moving, funny, 100% American, and brilliantly acted. Using theme and appealing characters, it has much to say, not just about how conformity and corporatism crush the individual spirit, but about our shared human condition; that thing within all of us — men and women alike — to strive, to overcome, to be your own man at all costs — and yes, there is a cost… but yes, that cost is worth it.

    But as I mentioned earlier, this has nothing to do with gender, and I can prove it… Here are two numbers that are not adjusted for nearly two decades of inflation: $40 million and $37.6 million.

    All the way back in 2000, a movie based on the television show Charlie’s Angels and called Charlie’s Angels opened to $40 million. It would eventually gross $139 million domestic and $264 million worldwide (back when the international market was nowhere near as open as it is today).

    All the way back in 2003, the sequel, Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle, opened to $37.6 million. It would eventually gross $101 million domestic and $260 million worldwide.

    But here’s the difference…

    The 2000 version of Charlie’s Angels somehow managed to drive home its empowerment and sisterhood message without dumpster-diving into misandry. And unlike this current trio of generic, androgynous, mall-girl angels, the 2000 version featured three sexy women: Drew Barrymore, Cameron Diaz, and Lucy Liu, who didn’t apologize for being sexy, who used that power to convince us guys the movie was worth our time, and they delivered.

    The goodwill from Charlie’s Angels (2000) was such that three years later the studio dropped $125 million into the sequel, and even though Full Throttle is pretty awful, it’s still more fun than this hideous 2019 reboot, which is why it was able to crawl over $100 million domestic, when that number really meant something.

    And so, Charlie’s Angels (2019) is the fifth franchise the man-hating woketards have destroyed, the fifth golden goose strangled by these joyless and the artless harpies.

    Charlie’s Angels (2019) excluded and demeaned men, told us we were not invited, so neither we nor the women who love us showed up, and now it’s the flop it deserves to be. Terminator: Dark Fate did the same: stridently pushed us out of the way because the future is female donchaknow, as did Ghostbusters, as did Men in Black.

    And then there’s Star Wars…

    Yeah, Star Wars is going to finish out its trilogy next month, and it will make a fortune, but afterwards that film franchise is doornail dead — as of right now there is nothing filming, nothing scheduled, not even a completed screenplay.

    Why?

    The man-hating of Last Jedi turned everyone off. Last Jedi under-performed bigtime, Solo tanked (Good God, a Star Wars movie tanked!), and now the greatest and most iconic movie franchise in history is… a TV show.

    We don’t hate you Hollywood.

    We’re just hating you back.

    You started it.


    And good luck with that new James Bond movie!

    Or harder. I don't expect it'll see the light of day at this rate, from what I've been hearing.

    Didn't somebody actually die on the Bond set? Never a good sign. And yeah the 1970's era Charlies Angels was fluff for sure, but it was still fun to watch. People won't pay $12 to see a movie that insults them, is full of dull and obnoxious people pushing a radical agenda.

    its well written and Nolte may be pointing at the problem with crew like Chiabella James and others in the industry demanding to rework the script

    appears to be her on the film set on her instagram

    its being deconstructed from within, they make the movies now, edit the final product, package the ad campaign

    if you open your wallet and feed that beast, you have only yourself to blame if you don't like what you see on the screen

    a film is like any other product that you can pick up off the shelf, read the ingredient list and determine if you want to consume that item

    or not

    BTW I was in Paris when Charlie's Angels opened way back when and the French "manifested" a flashmob to protest American militarism or some affrontery outside the theatre. We had no interest in going inside but were mildly amused at their gumption. If the author thinks Cameron Diaz was some pinnacle of special agent, well he does not remember the black and white era.

    The 5 is the failed franchise count; not the number of Charlie's Angels films. The five franchises are Ghostbusters, Men in Black, the Terminator, Star Wars and now, Charlies Angels is the fifth franchise to suffer major plot and theme changes to placate the social justice warriors and it is the kiss of death at the box-office!

    I know nothing about current movie releases, but it would seem to me in order to be taken seriously as a Woketard movie, The Angels should be some form of trannies, minorities, homosexuals, cross dressers, etc.
    Still kicking despite the devil's best efforts.

    I think they're ready to kill the Bond franchise, too.

    The 2000/2003 Angels movies also didn't take themselves at all seriously. They made fun of their sexiness and their whole premise, epitomized by the scene of Lucy Liu power-marching into a corporation in a leather business suit/skirt to Heart's "Barracuda", then going completely airhead when interacting with their target.
